Very accessible to a young or beginning middle school choir, The May Day Carol has a lyrical and flowing melody. Each of the three verses in the first half of the piece may be sung by a different choral section or soloist. In the second half of the piece the verses are repeated – verse one in unison, verse two in two parts and verse three in three parts.
